In rural areas, the most preferred absorbents are reusable cloth pads and in urban areas, women prefer to use commercial sanitary pads.
Types of Sanitary products used by women during menstruation are;
1) Reusable and Washable Cloth Pads
They may be sustainable sanitary option but must be hygienically washed and dried in the sunlight (very necessary). The sun's heat is a natural steriliser and drying the cloths under it sterilizes them for future use. They are reusable hence cost effective, easily available and ecofriendly.
2)Commercial Sanitary Pads
These are easily available in stores, chemist shops and online.
Unlike a pad, these are placed internally, inside of the vaginal canal. Once inserted correctly, the tampon is held I place by the vagina and expands as it soaks up the menstrual blood.
4) Menstrual Cups
A new technology for poor women and girls. An alternative for sanitary pads and tampons.
5) Banana Fibre Pads
These are low-cost sanitary pads made from waste banana tree fibre. Sold mostly in India.
6) Bamboo Fibre Pads
Instead of wood pulp, bamboo pulp is used as an absorbing material in these sanitary pads. They are affordable, easily decomposed and environment-friendly pads which possess antibacterial properties.
